Stayed here on my last night before leaving Sri Lanka and could not be happier with the staff, rooms and the free breakfast! I highly recommend the junkyard, it's so easy to meet fellow travelers and the staff make you feel at home

The place is well located and very nice. Good atmosphere and staff always happy to help. Rooms and common areas are kept clean at all moments. Laundry service available as well as a pick up and drop at the airport. The plus is the breakfast. Made in the moment and in front of you, fresh and delicious!

Really great hostel. Amazing breakfast included - we especially liked the curd and fruit. Comfy beds, good air con, great social seating area and helpful staff. Just a shame we didn’t really like Colombo but this is the perfect place to start your trip

Hi beatricewilkin!

Thank you for staying with us and your lovely review of Bunkyard Hostels! We really loved having you stay with us and appreciate your kind words :)

We are really glad you got a chance to try out our new breakfast addition, the curd and fruits! :) It seems to be a hot favorite at the hostel :)

Sadly, you were not able to enjoy Colombo much :( If you do get a chance to come back this way, we will help you to give it a second shot and hopefully you will change your mind :)

We hope you're having a wonderful trip around Sri Lanka and are able to capture some amazing memories to take back home with you :)

Happy Travels!

I really enjoyed my stay at Bunkyard. Chilled out staff and good facilities. Breakfast was tasty and bed was comfy. Showers and toilets are clean and good condition and the whole vibe of the place is very cool.
